Horoscope for May 6, 2018


Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 8:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Capricorn into Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you can sense the energies and vibes in people and circumstances around you. (Spooky!) This makes you more aware of what others want or need, which is good because then you can help them. Some will even sense this and might ask you for help.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your Spidey sense is finely tuned today. Because you are sympathetic to the needs of others, you are willing to put your own wants and needs second to those of people who have greater concerns. You will also have a higher interest in spiritual and mystical matters.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will find it gratifying to work with charitable organizations today or participate in a group that wants to benefit someone or help those in need. You feel empathetic and sympathetic to others. You might also want to help a friend today.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

If you have clout with anyone in power, or if you personally have power, you will use your influence to relieve the suffering of someone or help anyone in need. This is because something will touch your tender heart, which is a good thing in this busy, fast-paced, impersonal world.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, give yourself a chance to enjoy beautiful places: pristine parks, art galleries, museums or gorgeous, architectural buildings. You will also enjoy discussing profound subjects like philosophy and religion.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

If you have to divide or share something with someone today, you will be more than fair because you appreciate what the other person is going through. You see their needs and wants — and your own needs and wants — and you will make the wise decision.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You feel warmhearted to someone close to you today, perhaps a partner or a dear friend. In fact, you will feel warmhearted to members of the general public as well because you are in touch with your own kind heart, which is a good thing.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Someone might approach you at work today with problems. They might need your advice or your counsel. At the very least, you can offer a sympathetic shoulder to cry on or listen to someone with interest and understanding. Sometimes that’s all someone needs.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a productive day for creative projects! Those of you who work in the arts, entertainment, show business or the hospitality industry will be turned on with original, “far out” ideas. Enjoy the dance with your muse!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might want to redecorate or make where you live look more attractive today. Many of you will also be sympathetic to a family member. If you can help this person, you will. This is wise because family is gold. (And you know this.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might spend time daydreaming today or being lost in a fantasy world. That’s OK. We all need to take a mental holiday now and then and let our minds drift. Sometimes creative ideas come out of these daydreams — who knows?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

If shopping today, you might be tempted to buy something luxurious and elegant — and probably expensive. Fortunately, you might also dream up some moneymaking ideas. You will also be generous to someone if you have an opportunity because you feel sympathetic to the plight of anyone who is less fortunate.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor George Clooney (1961) shares your birthday today. You want worldly success and the perfect relationship. You are compassionate and caring and you appreciate beauty. This year is a time to simplify your life and build solid foundations. Channel your energy in one direction. Exercise is important. Take up yoga, martial arts or jogging — any physical discipline to help ground you. Hard work and effort will pay off this year!
